The Supermicro X10QBL-4CT motherboard can support up to four of Intel's Xeon E7 v4/v3 series processors - from either the 4XXX or 8XXX series. That for up to 96 total cores, or 192 threads, in a single computer! It is mainly geared toward servers, which shows in it's limited rear-panel port configuration: integrated VGA graphics with a few USB 2.0, serial, and a pair of 10Gb Ethernet ports - as well as the inclusion of an IPMI module for remote management. Due to its massive size, which is necessary to accommodate four CPU sockets, the selections of cases capable of fitting it is also very limited. Here at Puget Systems, though, we had adapted this board to work in a tower chassis with relatively quiet cooling - which makes it excellent for us as a scientific computing workstation.

It is worth noting that Windows operating systems are often limited to a specific number of physical processors that they can use. Windows 10 is limited to one (Home) or two (Pro) CPUs - so if you want to use this motherboard then none of the normal versions of Windows will suffice. Instead you need a Windows Server edition or Linux.
